     Dossier (continued; part 2): De Veritate Religionis Christianae

           Hans W. Blom
      Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam / Universitdt Potsdam


This introduction to the papers of the 2011 conference in Potsdam on De veritate aims
to put the reception of the work during the (early) Enlightenment into perspective,
while introducing the several articles and their distinctive takes on Grotius and his
theology. The importance of early-modern apologetics, its relations to natural theol-
ogy, to rationalism and Deism, as well as to the changing self-image of Calvinism, are
discussed. De veritate has been - and maybe still is - a mirror to reflect important
issues of Enlightenment and religion.


Christianity - natural theology - Deism - reason and revelation - truth and faith

      Nonnulli naturam dictantem adeo non audierunt, ut ausi fuerint negare numen
      esse aut curare mortalia,

i Hugo Grotius, Parallelon rerumpublicarum liber tertius, ed. byJ. Meerman, 4 vols. (Haarlem:
   A. Loosjes Pz., 18o1-1803; orig. Ms. from ca. 16o), III, p. 77 [caput xxvi, fol. 279r]: 'Some lent
   their ear to the proclamations of nature so little that they dared to deny the existence of God
   or His care for the mortal world.'
